Needed:(Broccoli Salad)

Head of broccoli

Candied nuts

Dried cranberries

Chopped bacon

Purple onion



Red Wine Vinegar


Candied Nuts:

Brown Sugar

Butter (1 stick:)

Heavy cream(a touch:)

Pecans or Walnuts

(Warm butter and brown sugar in a pan add a touch of cinnamon and cook till bubbles watch it all the time)

Add nuts and mix all together ...remove from heat and place on a greased cookie sheet .....put in 375 oven for about 15 minutes ....when cooled.....break up and let sit over night

Cut broccoli in desired bite-size

You can buy bacon bits or chop up a package of bacon and crisp in a skillet (fresh bacon is always better:) ...let cool

Slice one purple onion in desired bite-size(I like to make a little bigger so people can see it and eat around it:)

In a larger pan or mixing bowl add all the ingredients above with dried cranberries and chopped up candied nuts

The sauce:

Start with about 1 1/2 cups of mayo and about a 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar and about 1/4 cup of sugar (or a little less ...depending on how sweet you want it....remember you have candied nuts :)

So easy to make this Sauce to taste....if you have too much vinegar add more mayo ...and then switch that if too much vinegar:)

I wouldn't add sauce until about an hour before serving

Serve with a burger, doused in salt/pepper and Worcestershire .....served with cheese on a grilled buttered bun!
